Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance

http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov//HS/HSEES/

The Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance (HSEES) system was established by ATSDR to collect and analyze information about acute releases of hazardous substances and threatened releases that result in a public health action such as an evacuation. The goal of HSEES is to reduce the morbidity (injury) and mortality (death) that result from hazardous substances events, which are experienced by first responders, employees, and the general public.
